Each tutorial consists of a report that contains theory and simulation results on a topic. The reports are written in as visual manner as possible to make understanding easy. The simulation files are available on the e-commerce website Gumroad. Click here for a list of all my work.
Abstract: This tutorial describes how the operating point of a PV panel on the V-I characteristic is controlled by phase-shift control of the H bridge converter.Click here for the detailed report
Abstract: This tutorial describes how phase shift control is used for switching a dc-dc converter to boost the voltage produced by a PV panel up to the ac grid voltage.Click here for the detailed report
Abstract: This tutorial describes the concept of reactive power compensation in three-phase systems. The tutorial decomposes the load current into an in-phase component and a quadrature component. Using a three-phase Voltage Source Converter it is then described how reactive power is provided.Click here for the detailed report
Abstract: This tutorial describes how a PV panel can be simulated with a fair degree of accuracy with characteristics similar to those provided by the manufacturer. The tutorial describes the different factors that affect energy production in a PV panel and how the equations that govern energy production can be solved.Click here for the detailed report
Abstract: This concept describes how to design a controller for a power converter using trial and error method. The objective is to enable an engineer to learn control design in close association with converter operation rather than purely mathematically.Click here for the detailed report
Abstract: This tutorial describes the concept behind a Phase Locked Loop (PLL) implemented in software. The accompanying report describes the concept of transformations, rotating reference frames and filters that are used in implementing the PLL.Click here for the detailed report
